Happy Birthday Heather!
My sister, Heather just celebrated her birthday on 7-7-07 (born in '70!). How lucky is that? We had a fun BBQ - David made some amazing pizza on the grill and I got a chance to repeat the Triple Layer Chocolate Cake with Blackout Filling. Then we threw water balloons, of course. (Who doesn't want to have a water balloon fight on their birthday?)
Heather is such a great sister. She goes out of her way to help me all the time. Last year I started to miscarry and I was having a rough time, not sure what was really happening or knowing how to process it. Not 1 hour into it, Heather shows up and takes my 3 kids for the entire afternoon. She had them gathered up and out the door in like 2 minutes and my kids were pretty excited. They love their Aunt Heather and playing with their cousins. I'm not even sure how long it was, multiple hours at least, but I was so grateful I could just lay down and not worry about taking care of and feeding my kids. The amazing thing is, I could tell you 10+ stories just like that one where Heather has stepped in and helped me out so much. She just always seems to know what to do and how to help. Plus, she's so much fun to go the the movies or shopping or out to dinner with. Happy Birthday, Heather!
